    We will be meeting at the trail had in Monroe Wi. If you just get your self into Monroe you can stop at just about any gas station and they can steer you in the right direction. There is a decent size parking lot so if you need to trailer your dirt bikes, quads, or are just trying to take it easy on the better half like me (of course I'm a pussy and trailer everywhere anyway) you can park your trailer and vehicle there.
    Depature is 10:30-10:45. You don't have to be street legal.

    You will need a cheese trail tag available at the local Honda shop or the gas stations around town. That will cost $6.00. There is plenty of gas stops along the trail. And a few restaurants/bars with burgers etc.

    The speed limit is 30mph. But the scenery is excellent with lots of old train bridges etc. The trees should be full of color.

    We will take a slow pace so all will be comfortable and have an enjoyble time.
    This will be a good chance to get the misses and/or the kids out for one last ride.
    All are welcome. There will be some quads, a dirt bike or two, a couple 950's, a GS or two, and maybe a couple KLR's.
    My cell is 224-627-7581 if you are running late and want us to wait for you.
    See you there, Jim

    Hi Jim. Someone was asking me if you need a spark arrestor on your muffler to ride the trail. I don't know for sure and haven't been able to find anything out about it. Would you happen to know?


    I'm about 90 percent sure I will be there Sunday.

    Even if they say you need a spark arrestor, I have never seen anyone enforcing any sort of law/speed limit/equipment requisite...

    This late in the season, I wouldn't worry about...(off the record, of course)

    I'm in, but Mrs. McD is out, work is calling and she has a meeting she can't miss on Sunday morning. So no trailer for the KLR. I plan to ride the cold slab early Sunday to meet you folks at the trailhead. :D

    Skinner, are you running for a local govt spot? I keep seeing these signs around Lake County/Grayslake for some dork running for local govt. Is that you? I thought you had a different last name?

    I am in for Sunday, but Mrs. LIP is not. She had a 'foot procedure' yesterday and doesn't think she is going to be able to go on Sunday. She is OK to get her hair done on Saturday, but can't go riding with us on Sunday.

    I will call to follow up on details. Is it possible for me to grab a ride and a spot on the trailer for the GS?
